On July 6, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that two of the M142 HIMARS multiple rocket launchers recently supplied to Ukraine by the US had been destroyed.

During the MoD’s daily briefing on the special military operation in Ukraine, Lieutenant General Igor Yevgenyevich Konashenkov said that the launchers were destroyed near the settlement of Malotaranivka in Donetsk.

The destruction of some of Ukraine’s new HIMARS launchers is not surprising. While the system is highly capable, it is possible to locate and destroy just like any other land vehicle.
This will take care of the fantasy that western modern weapons would allow the Ukraine to defeat Russia...

Ukrainian officers had sold two French-made CAESAR self-propelled howitzers to Russia, the Donbass Insider reported on July 6.

French lawyer and politician Regis de Castelnau revealed on June 22 that two CAESAR howitzers had fallen into the hands of the Russian military. Back then, Regis said that the Russian military moved the howitzers to Uralvagonzavod plant in Nizhny Tagil, which develops and produces battle tanks, armored vehicles and howitzers, to be studied.

Later, the official Telegram channel of Uralvagonzavod confirmed Regis claims. The channel thanked France and President Emmanuel Macron for the howitzers, saying that they will be “handy”.

According to the Donbass Insider, Ukrainian officers sold the two French-made howitzers to Russia for the low price of $120,000 each. A single CAESAR howitzer costs at least seven million euros. The news blog speculated that the howitzers were sold to an intermediary, most likely an arms dealer, who in turn sold them to Russia.

(...)

The two howitzers sold to Russia were not the only ones to be lost. According to the credible Telegram channel Rybar, three howitzers were destroyed in air strikes on Kurakhovo, while one other was destroyed on the Kubanski peninsula in the Odessa.

Despite the Russian success in destroying and capturing French-made military equipment supplies to Ukraine, France recently vowed to supply the country with an additional six CAESAR howitzers as well as with a “significant number” of VAB armored personnel carriers.

Like the rest of Kiev’s Western allies, France believes that its military support to Ukraine will drain the Russian military and weaken Russia on the long term.

Ukraine could be wiped off the map – former Trump military adviser
https://www.rt.com/news/558566-military ... ceasefire/

Ukraine could disappear from the map unless the conflict with Russia is resolved peacefully, former Trump military adviser Colonel Douglas Macgregor said in an interview with Sky News Australia on Wednesday.

When asked what more could be done to help Ukraine in the ongoing military conflict, Macgregor stated that “the longer this lasts, the more people are going to be needlessly slaughtered, the more damage will be done to Ukraine,” adding that it is now “effectively a failed state, it could be erased completely from the map.”

Noting that Ukraine’s military has suffered enormous losses during the conflict and that Russian forces were “by no means overstretched or hurting at this point,” Macgregor argued that “we need a ceasefire” and that countries like Australia should be pushing for it since “no one in Washington is going to do it.”

“We can’t afford to fight this until there are no longer any Ukrainians left,” he insisted, noting that he has heard from people in Berlin, Paris, and London that there is growing support for a ceasefire or coming to “some sort of an arrangement” between Moscow and Kiev.

RT is not some independent forum for a variety of perspectives, it's a state-run propaganda outlet. If they're publishing it, it fits the Putin regime's view. And you've been shown already how your network of desinformatsiya cites third party authors out of the context of their broader work to make their views seem more favourable to that regime, e.g., Mearsheimer.

Russian forces destroy two UK-supplied Harpoon missile launchers in Ukraine operation
https://tass.com/politics/1477437

MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. Russian forces delivered strikes by sea-launched smart weapons to wipe out two Harpoon missile launchers in the Odessa Region delivered by the UK to the Ukrainian military, Defense Ministry Spokesman Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov reported on Friday.

"Sea-launched precision weapons eliminated two Harpoon coastal missile launchers in the area of the settlement of Liman in the Odessa Region delivered from Great Britain," the spokesman said.

Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexey Reznikov said on June 9 that the coastal defense line had been bolstered by "highly efficient Harpoon complexes." US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced on June 15, following a Brussels meeting of the Contact Group on Military Assistance to Kiev set up by Western countries that a new aid package for Ukraine included two Harpoon missile launchers.

Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov earlier said that the Russian Armed Forces were keeping a close eye on such deliveries and taking corresponding measures.
Which shows that Russia has no defense against the western "Wunderwaffen"...

Russia destroys US-made Harpoon launchers in Ukraine
Tuesday, 12 July 2022 9:13 PM
https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2022/07/1 ... es-weapons

The Russian military says it has destroyed more US-made weapons in Ukraine, where Moscow has been conducting a special military operation since February.

Reporting on Tuesday, Russia Today cited the military as announcing that it had laid waste to “several Harpoon anti-ship missile units” during a strike targeting the southern Ukrainian region of Odessa.

Several Western nations have supplied Ukraine with the Harpoon which is an anti-ship missile system made by Boeing.

The report on Tuesday identified the type of the projectiles used during the strike as Iskander short-range ballistic missiles.

The exact whereabouts of the mission was reported as the vicinity of the village of Berezan, some 20 kilometers (12 miles) northwest of the port city of Odessa, the administrative center of the region.

On Sunday, the Russian military said its forces had destroyed two Ukrainian army hangars storing US-made M777 howitzers in the eastern Ukrainian Donetsk region.

The Russian Defense Ministry said the destroyed hangars were located in the vicinity of the industrial city of Kostyantynivka.

And on July 6, Russia said it had crushed two US-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) missile launchers near the frontline in a village south of the city of Kramatorsk, which is likewise located in Donetsk.
